Ways Of Curating


Formats & editions


What can curating help us do? Hans Ulrich Obrist is one of the most influential figures in the art world today. Drawing on his own experiences - from staging his first exhibition in his kitchen to encounters with artists, impresarios and thinkers - he shows us how curating allows us to create new futures. 

Drawing on his own experiences and inspirations - from staging his first exhibition in his tiny Zurich kitchen in 1986 to encounters with artists, exhibition makers and thinkers - Hans Ulrich Obrist looks to inspire all those engaged in the creation of culture.
Moving from meetings with artists to the creation of the first public museums in the 18th century, recounting the practice of inspirational figures such as Diaghilev, skipping between exhibitions, continents and centuries, Ways of Curating argues that curation is far from a static practice. Driven by curiosity, at its best it allows us to create the future.
